Abstract: In capitalist democracies, corporate media faithfully reflects the dominant class ideology in both reporting and commentary. At the same time, the media leave the impression that it is free and independent, capable of balanced coverage and objective comments, but actually forms and maintains public opinion, being a possible ally but also a threat to national security. In this essay I will analyze the way in which communication and mass media influence the national security, taking into account the new media channels.
Keywords: globalisation, freedom of the press, informational war, propaganda, manipulation.
